When to Seek Treatment for a Sore Throat in Enfield, CT

For most people, a sore throat isn’t concerning. It’s something many of us have experienced, often due to a mild case of the common cold. There are a variety of at-home remedies to soothe sore throats, such as:

  • Drinking warm liquids, such as warm lemon water or hot tea with honey
  • Gargling with salt water
  • Sucking on a lozenge
  • Eating something cold, such as ice cream
  • Using a cool-mist humidifier

However, in some cases, a sore throat requires medical attention. That’s where PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Enfield, Connecticut, comes in. We offer prompt sore throat treatment to patients of all ages, and you can walk right in to our urgent care center for care. If your sore throat has persisted for longer than a week or is accompanied by a high fever (101 degrees or higher), an earache, a stiff neck, or sore joints, it’s important to have your condition evaluated by a professional. While most sore throats are viral infections that clear up on their own, some are caused by a bacterial infection that may require antibiotics to resolve.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
